Pink & Sparkle

Hi everyone

Hope you have all had a great day.  Its the weekend, yah!!  Well, have not stopped today, flying out early tomorrow so had to get everything sorted today.  I wouldn't mind but I'm only going for 5 days! Coco will be dropped off at mum's in the morning, her bag is already packed!

I didn't think I would have a chance to do a last card before I went but I managed to get one done, phew!  I've had my eye on the digi stamps from Bugaboo Stamps, they are so cool!  I've used just pink and black and lots of sparkle and gems!  I've also used a ribbon from Chanel - ooh, how posh am I!  What do you think?

I used some shoe background paper which I've had for ages and not used. 

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges this week:
Well that's me done.  Just going to pack my bed and get an early night.  Hope you all have a lovely weekend.  See you in a week.

Birthday Boy

Hi All

Well its certainly be a very pink and girly day on the blogs this morning!  I'm afraid I am going blue and boyish with a card for my nephew!  I thought the image was quite cute, its a digi image from Bunny Zoe's Craft.  Its very simple again but I promise I will try and do something a bit different next time! 

I used paper in my store with ribbon and buttons.  I used glitter around the edge of the frame and on the candles.  I also used glossy accents on the star and the candle sticks.  Promarkers used were: Arctic Blue, Blush, Henna, Dusky Rose, Midnight Blue, Apple.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Cottage - Birthday Boy
Totally Papercrafts - Happy Birthday
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch, Blue & Green

I like the colours on this and the spotty paper which is My Mind's Eye.

Martini Nikki

Hi All

I thought that I would do a Nikki card today in honor of the Ladybug Blog Hop tomorrow!  I love Martini Nikki, I think its my favourite!  I had in mind her sitting in a very up market London night spot when I was putting it together! I was putting it together and didnt stick anything down until I was happy.  Stuck it down, put it together and then looked back at it and thought I should have put a silver mirri mat between the image and the black mat.  I hate it when that happens!  Let me know what you think.
Card Receipe:
  • Martini Nikki - Ladybug Crafts
  • Kanban cardstock
  • Start Dust Stickles
  • Promarkers - Ice Grey 1, 2, 5, Plum, Terracotta, Blush
Entered into:
Aly's ASC25 Sparkle and Glitter Challenge
Craft Your Days Away - Girly and Glitter 
Stamp it Cracy - Girly Girl
Our Daily Bread Designs - Sparkle

I hope you are all having a good day.  Thank you for taking a look.
Take care

Hi everyone!

Well its not quite lunchtime yet but it is for one of the characters on this card!  When I first saw this image it made me laugh, who will get their lunch first!  Colouring animal fur makes me nervous and I did this image twice, still don't think its right but it will have to do! What do you think of it?

Card receipe:
  • Digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  There are some great images on there;
  • Various cardstock from Kanban
  • Promarkers - Ice Grey 2, 4, Tan, Cinnamon, Henna, Canary, Sunflower, Meadow Green, Cyan
  • Misc buttons that I had in my cupboard
I will be entering this into A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge this week where the theme is "Animal".

I hope you have a lovely Saturday, its miserable and drizzly where I am so not nice :-(  An excuse not to go anywhere and post some more cards later!!

Take care everyone and thanks for stopping by

New York Style

Good morning everyone

Mary thank you so much for your comments and advice.  I really do appreciate it.  The more I look at other bloggers the more I find and there is a whole world out there that I didnt realise existed!  You could spend all day just looking at other blogs.  I'm just in awe of all the fabulous crafters out there. 

I've done another birthday card today.  I'm happer with this than the previous ones.  I've used a stamp that I love and have had for ages and don't actually use.  I've just used some black and white card that I had in my stock, some red ribbon and fancy brads.  There is some dimension to this card although you can't see it from the photos! 

I'm happy with my colouring this time using promarkers.  I did colour the image twice, the first time I used the blender and it just looked like the pens had bled, it just looked awful.  So tried a second time and just blended with the different colours. 

If anyone has any comments on how I could have done this card differently or how I could have just taken it up a level I really would love to hear them. 

Anyway, I had better go and feed Coco.  She keeps walking across the PC and she was throwing herself across my card whilst I was trying to put the card together.  I think she is trying to tell me something! 

Enjoy your Sunday everyone.  I am off to a BBQ later.  Hope the weather holds!

Take care and thank you for looking

PS - I added the bow afterwards! 

I am entering this card in the Fab'N'Funky What'eva challenge.  Also One Stop Fashion Throughout The Years Challenge.
